It disgusts me when headlines are misleading.
Just a week ago I was lamenting the full rack of bikes on the front of a bus I recently attempted to board.
While I celebrate the usage of the rack I occasionally depend upon being able to board the bus. Well, seemingly right on cue bus bike rack usage statistics appeared in my Inbox this week.
The statistics say I'd better get used to it. This graph shows the four years Sioux Falls Transit has offered the ability to carry bikes from January thru May.
The raw data:
2006 - 1018 trips.
2007 - 1867 trips.
2008 - 1258 trips.
2009 - 2439 trips.
Could it be, perhaps it's true, the more bikeable the city becomes the more bikeable the city will be?
